I was lucky enough to win not one but TWO cruises, in just three days! I couldn’t believe my luck and since then I’ve decided to enter every cruise competition I can find on the internet.
I decided to create this list of every online cruise competition to make it easier for others to find cruise competitions and enter them online as well.
I’ve even provided the answers to any quiz questions for you. (I can’t guarantee that they’re correct, but I tried my very best)
How to win a free cruise
Entering the competitions to win free cruises is easy. Just click on each of the links below and you’ll be taken to the competition entry pages. Just enter your details and off you go. And don’t forget to check your emails in case you win!
As I’m based in the UK, I have chosen cruise competitions that are open to UK residents.
If you live in the US or Canada, take a look at this list of cruise sweepstakes for North American residents.

Competitions with text and postal entries
Some cruise competitions are only open to people entering via text or post. I usually don’t enter these as there is a charge to enter by text and I think that entering by post is a bit of a faff. If I ever have to post anything it usually stays in my handbag for a few weeks until I pass a post box!
However, if you’d like to enter the competitions too, then please go ahead. The links to the competition details are below.

Get notified of new cruise competitions
I send out an email each month to let people know about the latest cruise competitions. You can sign up to that here and never miss another competition.

Get a Discount on Your Cruise
The price of your cruise will be different depending on who you book it with. It’s always cheaper to use a travel agent with access discounted rates.
Of course, not all travel agents are equal in terms of the service that they provide, and a great travel agent is worth their weight in gold.
